Chang did an outstanding job with teaching transport and was beyond knowledgeable. She knows exactly how to answer questions from students and does so thoroughly. Her tests are quite tough given the time constraint, but that's what the curve is for so just really prove to yourself that you understand the material and you should be fine. The homework and discussions are very helpful to preparing for assessments, and take heed when Prof. Chang says "do this problem at home!" Great teacher, obviously very knowledgeable and is easily approachable.

Yeah, this class is hard I guess. But all the exam questions are from the textbook. I don't really think this class is too difficult, the questions aren't too unreasonable, but it's really just a matter of effort in this class. You just have to keep up with it and do practice problems and you'll be fine. Chang is really clear at teaching and very organized, so it's definitely great to take a class with her. Overall, class is fine, not too difficult, but just needs time to understand things.

This is one of the hardest classes I've taken. Even though Chang is a great professor, she expects a lot from her students, making us memorize little details in the book. The exams are really hard. The average for the midterm was 52.
But the bright side is that the curve is really generous. I was pretty sure I had failed the final but ended up with an A idk how.
So just make sure you get good grades on homework and above average on the midterm.

Jane is a great professor. She is very well organized, goes at a good pace, and is very clear in her lectures. Her tests are hard, and there is weekly homework, but she grades fairly to generously, and she is very available.

Great professor. She goes a bit fast and covers a whole lot of material, but it's doable. She also gives people somewhat of a tough/unapproachable impression. Don't be afraid to talk to her about whatever. Go to the TAs for homework help because they're much more generous with hints. Go to her for help with concepts and other stuff (like grading issues). I know people who've had issues with her when trying to argue for points back on a test or disputing the solution to a problem. The trick is you gotta be persistent but in a polite way.

She makes her tests basically by throwing together a bunch of conceptual questions and then picking problems from the book. I would say almost half of the problems on our tests were straight out of our book (which has about 100 problems per chapter). I'd also say the best strategy is to understand the lectures as best as possible and once you feel like you do, try solving random problems when studying (I doubt you'd be lucky enough to pick one that actually ends up on the test though). The test problems almost always have simple math but are conceptually hard, so pick wisely.

This is for heat transfer. I dunno bout her lab class, I heard that thing is killer.

Professor Chang is an amazing professor. Her lectures and notes are well organized and she will drop small hints on test material. Her board notes are impeccable, she once apologized for the messiness of a lecture that was far neater than any other professor's best day. With that being said, this class is difficult, but also not impossible. The material is hard and requires a good amount of work. Her final curve is fairly generous which helps balance out the difficulty of the class

Very direct and concise. She will drop hints as to what she expects for tests and assigns challenging homework problems. The lecture outlines that were used for the second half of the class were very nice to have. I also hear she might be using these outlines during the whole course from here on out. You have to work a little but the grading is fair.
